October 6, 1935 – April 13, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
Mom passed away peacefully with family by her side at Cedar Hill Care Center in Langley.
Claudette was born in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. Creston, BC is where she met our Dad, Donald, and they got married on January 22, 1955. They raised our family in Riondel, BC, a small mining community in the Kootenays, until the mine shut down in 1972 and they moved to “the coast”, settling in New Westminster.
She is survived by her 4 children – Kim (Glenn), Donna (Allan), Greg (Susan) and Diana (Israel); 8 grandchildren – Lynda, Jason (Nicole), Cheryl (Matt), Ashley (Uche), Adam, Diego, Alexis and Jesse; 6 great-grandchildren – Rosie, Elijah, Nevaeh, Jacob, Samantha and Chinelo; and 3 grand-puppies – Cali, Chloe and Wilbur.
She is predeceased by our Dad (in 2005), her loving husband and high school sweetheart, Donald (Don), with whom she celebrated 50 years of marriage; her parents, brother Starleigh and infant sister.
Mom (Granny) was a sweet little lady with spunk and a fire inside that took everyone who knew her by surprise. She was happiest when she was with her family. Everywhere she went she made wonderful friendships.
Together, with our Dad, she gave us a happy, fun and memorable childhood and supported and encouraged us throughout our lives. It was our pleasure and honor to return the favor, spending time with her, loving her and caring for her after our Dad passed away and as she grew older.
We would like to extend our sincere thank you and appreciation to the caring and compassionate staff at Cedar Hill Center. She also received excellent care from the kind staff at Chartwell Langley Gardens in Langley and Chartwell Willow in Maple Ridge.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, Mom requested any donations to go to the Children’s Hospital.
Rest in peace Mom! We love you!
